Soul music was originally a fusion between black American Gospel music and Rhythm and Blues, the early exponents being black American singers such as Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, etc. This website charts the birth of Soul music in the early 1960's right through to the end of the Soul music era in the late 1980's when the genre "Soul" was replaced by the genre "R&B" for popular, predominantly black American music. The term "rhythm & blues" (r&b or rnb) had previously been used in the 1960's and prior to that to describe popular, predominantly black American music.

There are many different types and styles of Soul music including Southern Soul, Deep Soul, Motown, Northern Soul, Sweet Soul, Disco Soul, Funk, House, Jazz-Funk Fusion, Modern Soul, Old School, Slow Jams, etc, etc.
